Georges is a remarkably good person. He is civic minded, but someone who will stand up and fight for what he believes in. We had a disagreement in '96 or '97 that I'll never forget. We did a liquor-by-the-drink tax, which the state government authorized us to do, with 100% of the money going to the school districts. Well, there was a firestorm from the restaurants, so we organized a meeting with some Council members. Georges was screaming. He lost his temper, and when that happened he would curse in French. "Georges, you’re being ridiculous," I told him, and asked, "When was the last time someone walked into Le Bec-Fin and ordered a martini and asked how much it cost?"
